I have to get some things off my chest. I seriously do not like the direction that America is headed.... Call me a patriot, call me old fashioned, call me whatever you choose, but in all honesty, I AM OFFENDED!
Personally I could give a rats **rs what race religion creed or color you are, but I do take offense to all of the political correct b**sh** that country is seemingly adhering to. Your rainbow flag offends me, profusely! You wanting to take away my confederate flag offends me, you calling me racist because I'm white OFFENDS ME! What the crap pile is freaking WRONG with our country????? I don't know where to turn anymore?????? It's like I am NOT allowed to think anymore!!!! everything I do or think or believe is politically INCORRECT and I am not allowed free thought or speech or the pursuit of ANYTHING without offending "SOMEONE"!

I come from a long line of veterans, so there you go ats, flag me & report me, and I have been several years without their direction, and just, imho, when I am needing them most. Maybe it was GODS grace that they not have to live through this time, or maybe it was the DEVILS design to take them and their wisdom from me..... but I honestly fear for the direction my country is headed, and the world for that matter. There seems to be so much against us, and our so called "leaders" seem to be spear heading the destruction and downfall. It seems the more I try to prepare and work towards combating this, the more resistance I face, the more my own family turns against me! I honestly am at wits end & find myself at the cusp of giving up- or turning my back for my own survival.....

that being said ..... is there anyone else out there that feels the same way or finds themselves feeling the same way or in the same boat?

Personally speaking, I feel and believe that we are headed into the "last days" and I'm losing more folks than I am gaining...

advise?

info"

criticism?

comments?

Your free to say whatever you like, just not here on ATS Where there are terms and conditions. I wish people would stop going on about PC. No one is stopping you, there's no such thing as political correct police. Say what you want. Just not on here.

If you're offended by the rainbow flag and simultaneously offended that other people are offended by your precious confederate flag, then you're a hypocrite.

Conservatives are the biggest hypocrites in the world as a matter of fact. They don't want our "facist" government making decisions for us, however they have no problem pushing their will on other people (stopping gays from getting married or women from getting abortions) and refuse to acknowledge that it has absolutely nothing to do with them. Look the other way and it won't bother you. If you can't handle progression and equality, the ignorance is bliss my friend.

Oh my, this thread again...

You can still say what ever you want and you can still fly your confederate flag.

Sorry that people will call you out for what you say these days.

I agree with you more than disagree, but you are, of course, going to get flamed. You know how the New Tolerati are:



Anything less is grounds for verbal abuse.

I ask the same question.

I think the Rainbow flag is beautiful. I's a symbol of love and equality. Unlike *other flags that represent hate and oppression.

(* Not limited to the op's referenced flag.)

I thought I understood but maybe not. What I got is that you're very worried about how everyone in America is so easily offended by anything that were not allowed to have opinions anymore for the fear of retaliation. Completely understandable. But you prefaced it by telling us several things that offend you. So you sound like just as much of a part of the problem as the people you are referring to. In other words, you sound like a hypocrite.

If you're trying to be ironic then I apologize for the misunderstanding, otherwise I think YOU may be missing MY point.

Oh I'm sorry I made a typing mistake on my phone.

The context was clearly there for you to know what I meant.

Like when you say " I'm the rant fourm" I know you don't mean you are literally the rant forum but mean in the rant forum.

Care to address what I said not just a simple mistake?

I don't understand why people come to ATS to moan about political correctness. No ones forcing you to comply. Typical right wing paranoia.

You should really reread faint1993's post again really slowly. Let it sink in. It makes the most sense thus far.

Like waking up and discovering your house is on fire? You run from room to room trying to save your family but they want to remain asleep.

Or looking over your neighbors fence one day you see them seated at dinner in one room and in the back their house is on fire, too.

What do you do?

a reply to: SgtHamsandwich the rainbow flag does not offend me, what offends me is the fact that the Whitehouse will not fly the flag in honor of vets without prodding but can arrange days in advance of an "unknown" decision to aluminate the white house, which should always be bathed in red white & blue, not the colors of a gay culture

First of all, it is very hard to know exactly what to say here. Simply put, you have provided an awful lot of vitriol, but no detail as to what, specific events and things, are aggravating you. That would be helpful, if you are looking for advice or information which might improve things for you.

Also, I personally agree that the confederate flag being gotten rid of from certain locations, is an unfortunate backslide, because it is important that history be remembered in its entirety, not just in acceptable chunks, devoid of depth or nuance.

However, I have to ask what your problem with the rainbow flag is. Just because you might disagree with a thing, does not mean that you have to find it offensive. Frankly, a bunch of people living life their way, and being treated equally by society, rather than being ostracised and discriminated against is a good thing, and that's all it is.
